Panache Digilife NSE SME IPO review (May apply)

Review By Dilip Davda on April 4, 2017

Panache Digilife Ltd (PDL) - (Formerly known as Vardhaman Technology Ltd.) is a one stop IT Hardware hub, specialized in manufacturing, distribution and servicing of high quality products. Since its inception in 2007 Panache Digilife has been a Technical Service Provider, over the years it picked up expertise in procuring, manufacturing and marketing White Boxes. In June 2000, PDL emerged to become one of the most respected and professional one stop computer system specialists. The company has 5 divisions: PC division, Education division, Telematics division, AV division, Industrial design. It has the vision to become a world class, competitive and profitable ICT Manufacturing, Distribution and Services Company.

To part finance its working capital and general corpus fund needs, the company is coming out with a maiden IPO of 1800000 equity share of Rs. 10 each via book building route with a price band of Rs. 75 -81 per share to mobilize Rs. 13.5 - 14.58 crore (based on lower and higher price bands). Issue opens for subscription on 11.04.17 and will close on 17.04.17. Minimum application is to be made for 1600 shares and in multiples thereon, thereafter. Issue is solely lead managed by Pantomath Capital Advisors Pvt Ltd. and Bigshare Services Pvt Ltd is the registrar to the issue. Post allotment, shares will be listed on NSE (SME) Emerge. It raised equity at par from inception till March 2009 and has issued bonus shares in the ratio of 13 for 1 in January 2017. Post issue its current paid up equity capital of Rs. 4.2 crore will stand enhanced to Rs. 6.0 crore.

On performance front, the company has posted turnover/net profits of Rs. 23.68 cr. / Rs. 0.34 cr. (FY13), Rs. 24.74 cr. / Rs. 0.43 cr. (FY14), Rs. 39.55 cr. / Rs. 0.99 cr. (FY15) and Rs. 49.73 cr. / Rs. 1.38 cr. (FY16). For the first nine months of the current fiscal, it has earned net profit of Rs. 1.44 cr. on a turnover of Rs. 32.38 cr. If we annualize the latest earnings and attribute it on the fully diluted equity post issue, then the asking price is at a P/E of around 23 to 25 (based on lower and higher price bands). On P/BV aspect the price is 5 times plus. As per prospectus, the company has listed Cerebra as its peers (although not strictly comparable) that is quoting at a P/E of 384 plus. As on 31.12.16, company’s trade receivables were 70.42 per cent of the total current assets that appears to be a major concern. For the last three fiscals trade receivables were at 56.09% (FY14), 64.39% (FY15) and 46.18% (FY16).

On merchant banker’s front, this is the 42nd mandate from its stable and past mandates have shown mixed trends. However, if we consider last 10 listings, they have given positive returns on the listing day.

Conclusion: While company has been performing well with rising top and bottom lines, its trade receivables too were surging that remains major concern. Risk savvy cash surplus investors may consider investment.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy
